Oh dear, the most spirited discussion we've had here in a while and it's about plugging in phones. Ok, here, what's wrong with this photo?

Let me guess, your phone line got wet and it's causing connection problems?

He's well, itching to get back into photography, playing with his new software (he has just purchased the Nic?? photoshop presets) and in overall, good health

That looks like it is at wet carpets level :(

Great photos in your blog.
How to make a flood look pretty!

You actually live next door to number 9 but they stored so much in their loft that as the waters rose, their house flipped completely over from being top heavy. They now, in the words of Blancmange, are really 'Living on the Ceiling'.

More exciting telecommunications talk:


Heres a photo of the current wall jack were the phone line comes into the house:

The line in from the street is black, with black and yellow wire pair connected to the jack point.
The other 2 pairs of wire run off to the other jack points.

I assume I can take the yellow and black pair and just connect them into one each side of a new jack point?
Then as per Duncan's diagram, run another pair to the next jack point?

Heres the current jack point the modem is plugged into, as you can see lots of pairs of wires going everywhere, in what I believe are old 3 wire jack points???

I would re-route the line from the street to this jack point, and replace it with a new jack point.

classic 3-wire house wiring. By the photo's, this work looks to have been installed by the typical John Wayne type...

Them phone jacks aren't actually designed to accomodate the thicker yellow/black cables so wouldn't be suprised if that's where your problem started (the gorrilla-snot holding the other cables together is a bit of a giveaway to impending doom also...) The termination points on these BT jacks are designed to have a max of 2 insulated cables punched down onto them (not a boat-load of stripped-back copper!)

If you're replacing the jacks then really all you need do is feed the yellow/black pair directly to an ADSL splitter somehow. It could be via a standalone BT jack or RJ-45 socket.

The "Phone" side of the splitter then feeds off to the phones (oddly enough!) you may need to install a second jack to achieve this. Most splitters with plugs have a BT plug to go into the line/telco side, a BT socket for phones and a RJ-11 socket for the ADSL router/modem.
You could plug one of these splitters/filters into the standalone BT jack, then use a BT-to-BT cable to get it back into the main phone wiring (which consists of BT jacks all wired in parallel) and the RJ-11 off to the router/modem.

TXT me tomorrow sometime if you need more info & I'll give you a call...

Cow boy alright.
Fireman who thought he was builder/sparky/plumber​.

Amanda's father (who is a sparky) had to rewire the bathroom and kitchen to fix the fireman's attempt to burn the house down with dodgy wiring. We're lucky we had him check it.
He's also done the phones, and we keep finding other little things to fix.

I'll get under the house tomorrow and move the phone line, and install a new jack point :)

Cheers!

The early ones lasted more than a year :cool:


Every group has its busy and its quite times.
For various reasons most of us have had other things to spend our time on.

I think this summer could be different though, would be nice to have a few outings again :cool:

Well I've rewired the house.
Line from the street straight into the jack the modem is connected to.

Makes a huge difference!

No phone yet though, I need a longer run of cable to go to the kitchen with out having any joins.

Amanda is going to get a new wall plate and cable from work tomorrow (I guess it's nice to have a phone) and also find out about RJ45 wall plates as well :)
